Kodansha opened an official website for a television anime adaptation of Reiji Miyajima's Kanojo, Okarishimasu (I'd like to Borrow a Girlfriend) manga on Sunday. The anime series is scheduled for a July 2020 premiere.

Synopsis
Dumped by his girlfriend, emotionally shattered college student Kazuya Kinoshita attempts to appease the void in his heart through a rental girlfriend from a mobile app. At first, Chizuru Mizuhara seems to be the perfect girl with everything he could possibly ask for: great looks and a cute, caring personality.

Upon seeing mixed opinions on her profile after their first date, and still tormented by his previous relationship, Kazuya believes that Chizuru is just playing around with the hearts of men and leaves her a negative rating. Angry at her client's disrespect towards her, Chizuru reveals her true nature: sassy and temperamental, the complete opposite of Kazuya's first impression. At that very moment, Kazuya receives news of his grandmother's collapse and is forced to bring Chizuru along with him to the hospital.

Although it turns out to be nothing serious, his grandmother is ecstatic that Kazuya has finally found a serious girlfriend, which had always been her wish. Unable to tell her the truth, Kazuya and Chizuru are forced into a fake relationship—acting as if they are truly lovers. [Written by MAL Rewrite]

I'm sure this takes a lot of chapters.

Since Sakurazawa Sumi's got a cast I'm guessing at least up to chapter 44, though I have absolutely no idea how they're going to finish up after that. Maybe, if they adapt a few more chapters, like up to 60. I'd reckon they'd need 24 episodes for that - if they try to squeeze the first 44 (or worse, the first 60) chapters into a 12 episode season then either the pacing is going to be heavily rushed or they're going to skip some stuff.

Damn, i never thought this manga has a chance to get adapted because i don't really think this manga is popular. I've stopped reading this manga for a while now because it's getting boring for me, but the studio, cast, and the PV looks interseting. Maybe i'll try watching the anime.

why are these type of below mediocre endless drama harem bait stories with annoying characters so popular?

Can't go wrong with this cast.

I've been starving for a good romance anime for quite some time now. And to think we're getting this on the same season as Oregairu S3? And also by a studio who has good track record, with Re:Life, Fruits Basket and especially Dr. Stone? I'm down for it.

Nice! I’ve been reading this manga for a while now and always thought it would make a fun anime to watch. Can’t wait to see it!

chizuru is rude and borderline abusive. as well too much lies and denial and clearly exploit MC at times.
ruka is very intrusive and obsessive. already passing stalker line.
even most recent girl is like spoiled brat.

the only decent one is sumi, not because she is original or something, but she is just kuudere that less doing something bad and actually not give MC a problem.

i mean, you are not wrong, kazuya is not likeable character, but i simply pointing that the girl is worse. kazuya at least keep it for himself. we all always have that kind of cringe friends. even to this day. so i don't see his character unrealistic. if people mock him, understandable, but i didn't excuse the girl either just because they are pretty.

I can see why you mentioned the girls but Kazuya is 20 btw. TWENTY. Using the excuse of "youth" in his defense in "anime terms" will be the thorn for any other discussions as we will never be able to put an argument. Most of the other MCs are 3-5 years younger than him and get BBQ'ed alive for being less cringe.
